||Arriving by Water
Crowley's Yacht Yard is located 12 miles south of Monroe
Street Harbor, two bridges in from the Calumet harbor.
Boaters not familiar with the area should use NOAA Charts 14927, 14928 & 14929 for directions and for avoiding hazards.
The 68th Street Crib is located at 41°47'10" n 87°31'54" w. The main gap in the Calumet Harbor breakwall is 41°44'17.8" n 87°30'43.5" w. The 92nd Street and 95th Street bridges open on demand.
They are manned 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Arriving boaters
requiring a bridge lift should hail the 92nd Street
bridge tender on VHF Channel 16 after
entering the Calumet River. Give the bridge tender your
boat name and location, and request a bridge lift. Give commercial
traffic a wide berth. If you see other mast-up vessels
nearby, try to transit the bridges together. Crowley's
Dockmasters will be monitoring VHF Channel 16.
